In this week’s episode, Kohn and Thompson discuss AFI Fest opening night film “A Most Violent Year,” the latest drama from J.C. Chandor, and explore why it faces a tough road ahead during awards season. Considering the news that Jessica Chastain has been limiting in her promotion of the movie because of her obligations to “Interstellar,” the duo touch on Christopher Nolan’s domineering control over the marketing efforts behind his film. They also dig deeper into the acting categories as the Oscar race continues to heat up. Finally, they turn to their favorite new releases, with Thompson favoring the Terrence Malick-inspired “The Better Angels” and Kohn praising the Netflix documentary “Virguna.”
